Full Backcover Description

Are you ready to improve your life by learning cardiovascular and strength training exercises? Instructor Angie Miller and her crew will show you the way to develop strength while also improving balance and mobility with this easy to follow program of exercises which are designed especially for senior citizens just starting out with exercise and for those who want a refreshing, modern approach to physical fitness.

Angie leads the way with four segments beginning with an easy warm-up designed to get your body ready for what is to come next. Next, the cardio portion contains 22 minutes of heart-healthy moves split into four sets. Then Angie and the gang will perform the 24- minute strength training segments with routines and exercises utilizing small hand weights and a chair that will help you stay strong, balanced and mobile. Finally, a relaxing 5-minute stretch finishes things off and sends you on the way to a productive and healthy day.

The Absolute Beginners Cardio and Strength Training Workout for Seniors DVD is designed specifically for mature adults with safe, simple and effective exercises that are performed in a relaxing and educational pace. Each segment also includes an exercise modifier so that you can follow along and perform the workouts to the best of your ability.

Certified instructor description:

Straight-forward and fun. It's just easy-to-follow aerobics and seniors-specific muscle toning. This is an effective way to burn calories, strengthen muscles and improve balance. The cardio section raises your heart rate with simple combos of familiar steps (e.g. marches, step touches, hamstring curls and mambos).

The toning section uses both standing and seated-in-a-chair exercises. It begins with the larger body areas and then proceeds to the smaller muscle groups (including the often-neglected stabilizers). Lots of level options. Angie Miller's cuing is helpful and encouraging ("everyone is different, go at your own pace"). Has an energetic class of 68 to 75-year-old exercisers. Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012.
